February 14, 2014 - Complex and balance, a young lady at the beginning, elegant, good shape. Red fruit, berry, cherry, plum, sweet.... After an hour, herb, vanilla, cedar, cigar box, smooth tannin, medium minus acidity and good finish

May 14, 2013 - Chicago Rotating Host Wine Dinner Series - May 2013 (RPM Italian - Chicago, IL): Tasted blindly. Felt good asserting that this was from Bordeaux, but I was thinking Graves, not St. Emilion. Wonderfully aged Bordeaux nose that's truly hypnotic. Dried leaves, tobacco, cedar, red and dark fruits, leather, and earth. The cabernet franc greenness wasn't overtly noticeable here, but it did had a fresh pea note to the nose with some air. The palate was in a great spot. Some '76s can be a big cloying given the heat of the vintage, but this was firm, trim and fresh. Impressive bottle.

May 22, 2011 - Very cedary, layered, complex - cassis and blackcurrant. Very smooth, seamless; very integrated, fine tannins. Slightly earthy element. Beautiful bottle of wine. Thank you again, Bob.
